Congrats Sir Jimmy! I was one of the judge of the contest and I found your blog very inspiring. I read your articles in the Philippine Star and I think you should also expand your network in the blogosphere so that many people can be aware of your thoughts.

Cheers Jimmy!

Nakakamiss talaga ang Pilipinas at mga Pinoys. Buti na lang we can all connect sa blogs.

A well deserved award! Congratulations, Happy New Year and btw love the new APO cd [that I posted about it]:

Again, I couldn’t agree more, especially the insights and the whole content notwithstanding that you seldom post your pictures. I know you are a great photographer as well, a man with so many talents!

i am so glad you won for two reasons: 1) because you are excellent and you deserve it, and 2) because it means we (ang bumabasang madla) have the ability to recognize, appreciate and promote excellence 🙂

congrats to Jim, the judges, the award hosts, to all of us!
